I would E.c.ho other reviewer's views and say this is a very convenient hotel for the railway station, modern, clean and an excellent inclusive breakfast. The room was clean and a reasonable size and the staff were very friendly. The hotel is also reasonably priced. I agree with another reviewer that the free wifi is very stow so this is something to look out for is it is important to you. The hotel is a good 15 to 20 minute walk from the centre or two our three if you are lugging suitcases from the train. I know which I prefer.

Truly recommended.

Just a short walk away from Milan Central Station where express buses and trains from Malapensa airport drop you the echo is truly convenient. Taxis and the metro are also on the doorstep. The rooms are super quiet and clean. A good breakfast spread and excellent service staff. Just what you expect but don't always get from a 4 star hotel. We also stayed in their sister hotel Rosa Grande near the duomo but Echo was far better.

Short walk past taxi stands of Milano Central Train Station, 45 minutes by train from Malpensa Airport. Seven floors with two fast elevators. Small fitness room next to room 704, with glass wall and view of rooftops. Room 704 has a small walled patio deck with a small table and two chairs. Good morning and afternoon sun.

Queen-sized bed with same size mattress. Medium and soft pillows on bed. Light comforter. A/C worked and was quiet. Safe was large enough for a laptop. Ten hangers initially, closet safe obstructed hanging pants, two wall-mounted hooks available. 36” Phillips flat-screen TV with a few dozen national channels and BBC, information guide suggested movies also; sports and news available but were untried. Medium-size bath with a narrow shower and all modern, functional fixtures. Hot water OK after a bit. Large white, soft, cotton bath towels. Narrow writing desk with stool. Dual electrical outlets with connections for old- and new-style circular European power connectors. Room keycard required for power and also signals occupancy so there are no housekeeping disturbances. Wi-Fi was free but a nuisance to log on.

Front desk staffed by friendly, English-speaking staff. Bellman was helpful as well. Hotel-supplied city maps good enough to find local brewpubs and beer-bars. Lobby area between front desk and bar/lounge is spacious with very comfortable sofas and view of adjacent outdoor patio. Small bar with no stools, and some nearby tall tables. Expensive, very limited beer offerings, but the wine situation was somewhat better. Large dining area with buffet for breakfast. Tastefully decorated and peaceful setting with movable two-top tables and chairs. Breakfast seemed fixed: cheesy scrambled eggs, bacon, hardboiled eggs, canned fruits, fresh fruits, yogurt, cold meats and cheeses, cereals and milks, orange and cranberry juice, coffee, espresso, and teas.

Overall, recently remodeled, stylish, and functional. No city noise noticeable. Great staff. A few nearby restaurants, bars (Bar Mogamo has four craft beers on tap!), and ATMs. A good business destination. Rates raise on weekends.

Room Tip: I found the top floor to be quiet, without traffic noise.

Wasn't sure what to expect but found the hotel to be modern and clean with good customer service.

Upon arrival bellman was on our bags and check-in was easy. Lobby was chic and offered a lounging area as well as a bar with indoor and outdoor sitting and a full restaurant. Very good free food spread in the morning and for happy hour.

Room was good size and included all amenities.

Location was convenient for the central train station (a 3 minute walk) but otherwise, location is the only major drawback. If you don't need to be near the train station and/or you like have a selection of places to walk to, this is not your neighborhood as there are no restaurants, attractions, bars, or other hotels worth visiting nearby.

Very clean and convenient hotel. Great breakfast and helpful front desk. Room was a bit small to unpack for a long stay, but being close to train station was extremely useful. Could use better internet service for such a large business clientele.

Good value for money, very good if you are on a business trip (close to subway and train station).
Good design, amazing breakfast and fast service.
There are some environmental features such as the AC that stops when you open the windows, there are TV sound speakers in the WC, the wooden floors and a whole lot of eco friendly materials without loosing the comfort.
The price was very affordable comparing to other 4 star hotels. this one is also new.
The service is good, thought they could not serve the breakfast or an expresso in the terrace as the bar outside is not open before 10 am (the bar is next to the breakfast restaurant so this should never be a problem...)

Very nice hotel. Helpful front desk. Convenient to train station and easy walk to what to see in Milano. Ridiculously terrible internet connection. That is no internet 99% of the time. They have to fix this it is 2014 after all.
